Our local supermarket is Tesco. I don't like Walmart (Asda) or Somerfield or Co-op. I am a Tesco or Sainsbury kinda housewife. But Sainsbury is about 11 miles away and the frozen food thaws, so Tesco is my weekly shop.
But I am rethinking this policy.
I am a good customer. I am considerate and thoughtful to other customers and staff. I use the correct parking slots (I am not allowed to use disabled or 'Mother and Baby' spaces - mind you, that doesn't usually stop able-bodied childless people!), I park straight within the lines (don't they teach parking these days??), I never dump my trolley in an empty parking slot (there's enough to look out for in carparks without having to consider abandoned trolleys).
I don't stop my car right outside the door, blocking everyone's way and I don't park in the 'Pick Up Bay' and disappear for an hour.
Once in the store, I don't leave my trolley in the middle of an aisle, I don't stand for hours with my trolley blocking several shelves of food, I don't have children that run wild, I don't curse people who clunk me with their trolley, I don't wander around with my phone clamped to my ear, or texting furiously, I help little old ladies reach food off the top shelves, I don't get impatient with the till staff who can't perform the simplest functions, I don't yell at the people who can't sensibly load the conveyor or, at the other end, pack their bags, pay and get their s*** together in less than half an hour, I don't need help packing and use minimum bags, I even take my shopping list home and don't sling it on the floor.
I am a *good* customer!For this sterling behaviour, this is what I get:
Is it me? I'm pretty sure there should be food in there.....
